Although many Backwoods Horror readers may remember Michelle Trachtenberg best as portraying Buffy’s little sister Dawn on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, and perhaps the only reason to have seen the train wreck also known as the BLACK CHRISTMAS remake (as the character Melissa). Given her youthful looks, she’s often been cast in younger roles, but recently has been taking on more mature characters in upcoming films such as the currently in production triller THE SCRIBBLER. Perhaps in an effort to break away from the image filmmakers currently have in mind when casting her, the youthful, innocent type, she recently gave an interview with the South African version of the popular men’s magazine FHM including a sultry photo spread that definitely makes the statement that she’s all grown up. Check out more like the image above and a behind the scenes video after the break.

From Dread Central:

In some shockingly sad news “Angel”‘s Andy Hallet has passed away due to heart disease at the much too young age of just 33.

Hallet played everyone’s favorite singing green-skinned demon Lorne on the show. The actor passed away at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after a five-year battle with heart disease with his father Dave Hallett by his side.

Hallet delighted fans everywhere and has left us with some truly hilarious memories. I can think of no better way to send him off than with a song. Rest in peace, Andy, and thank you.

A TRUE BLOOD Retraction

Posted on 16th September 2008 by aaron in Reviews - Tags: , , , , ,

In an earlier post, I wasn’t so nice about the first episode of True Blood.  Well, after going back and watching the full (non-rough-cut) version of the first episode, I realize I was a bit harsh.  Anyhow, like I said, after going back and watching the first episode, yeah, you know what, I actually kind of liked it.

Of course, there were still some issues, like the horrid fake-ass southern accents. Being from the South, I can spot it right off. So I’m watching the second episode right now.  I can see myself getting into this show if they keep the mushy romance bullshit to a minimum and develop the stories and characters.  I have to admit that Buffy was a guilty pleasure of mine, and I guess this could be a kind of replacement for the void left after that show went off the air.  I’ve been fillin’ the hole with Supernatural, which, if you haven’t seen it, you had better go right out and buy the first, second and third seasons, that show is fucktastically awesome!  I’ll have to right a post about it.  I think I’ll add True Blood to my list of shows (including House, Lost, Monsterquest and so on)

Anyhow, I’m ramblin’.
